Overview

Treat yourself to a winemaking tour and horseback riding in Tuscany on this 6-hour experience from Florence. Led by an expert guide, ride through Tuscany’s Chianti wine region by horseback, admiring the scenic landscape of vineyards and olive trees as you go. Stop to visit a local wine cellar and hear about the region’s winemaking tradition. Afterward, sit down to a flavorful meal of Tuscan dishes, complemented by smooth Chianti wines. Numbers are limited to six people to keep the experience as intimate as possible.
  • 6-hour horse riding day trip in Chianti, from Florence
  • Explore the Chianti countryside on horseback with your guide

Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet up with your guide and hop aboard a minivan set out for the hillside. Watch the scenery out of the windows switch from bustling city life to dense forests, vineyards and olive groves.

Arrive at the stables after 45 minutes and get acquainted with your horse with a safety and orientation session. No previous riding experience is necessary for this tour, and riders of all skill levels are welcome.

Strap on your provided riding hat and head out into the open fields of the Chianti countryside with your guide. Take in the fresh air and stunning landscape as you gallop through open fields and forested trails.

After an hour, return to the minivan to travel to a local winery, where you’ll enjoy a tour of the cellars. Learn about Chianti region's unique winemaking tradition and the process of production.

Then head to a stunning Italian villa, wrapped in cypress and olive trees, where the cellars of a boutique winery sit. Settle down for a traditional Tuscan lunch of specialties like salami, bruschetta, prosciutto and Pecorino cheese, complemented by fine Chianti wine. Hear about the characteristics of each blend while you sip, eat and relax.

Your wine tour and horseback riding experience will conclude with drop-off back in central Florence.

I was a little worried because I went on this adventure without my hubby. But it was honestly one of the best days in my life! It was me, almost 60, with 7 18year olds and they were great! My horse was perfect, very attuned to the slightest touch. Lucky for me I've been around and on horses for the last 9 years. Some people had never ridden before. It was much better than I had anticipated as we went up and down small hills and through tiny creeks. Through a vineyard or two and olive groves. The scenery was stunning!!! There was a point where you have to climb on foot to get to the first winery after the ride and I won't lie, it was a tough climb for me. The wineries were beautiful and I bought wine and olive oil at the 2nd one. Lunch was wonderful too, lots of fresh food and pasta! I would recommend it if you have ridden at least a few times and feel comfortable on a horse. And you are in decent shape to climb a bit!! Definitely not for the physically challenged. Our guide was the best!!!

This was such a good value tour, our guide Grazia made it a very special day , she was very informative about the area and such a good companion, Eliza took us on the ride through the beautiful countryside on her horses that she is clearly dedicated to , and were used to novice riders. The vineyard visit and tasting at Torre a Cona was extremely interesting with an engaging guide and Grazia then took us on another vineyard tour , tasting and on to a lovely lunch , she explained many things about the local culture and economy that we had been interested to know more about that added so much more to the experience.. Thank you so Much Grazia from Denise and Jan

We had a great time horseback riding through the vineyards of Tuscany and our wine cellar and dinner tour. The sun setting over the mountains while on horseback in the vineyards was spectacular and worth the trip alone. Matteo ?,our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We would highly recommend this tour.

The day overall was lovely. The food and wine for lunch was great! The horseback riding was a little shorter time than I would have liked and a little less adventurous too. Good for beginners, but, a bit mundane for moderate to experienced riders. The countryside was beautiful and we did enjoy the day. It was a wonderful experience overall and we're glad we did it.

Our guide Claudia was great, horseback riding fabulous....very gentle horses and lovely countryside. My ONLY negative was how much driving in the tour van was involved.....long trip to the Cellar....then long trip to dinner. Dinner was very good and nice to chat with others at the table. Would recommend this trip, but be prepared to do some driving.

A very unique way to experience the Tuscan countryside. Really enjoyed the views and our guides were very knowledgeable and nice. The only thing I would have changed ,and I understand safety and the experience of the group comes into play, is that I would have loved to have done a little more than just a very slow walk on the horses. All in all a great experience and I would do it again!

This experience can't be beat! Horseback riding in Tuscany followed by a vineyard tour and lunch with wine at a beautiful ranch. Giuseppe, our tour guide was fantastic! Pickup was easy, we met our group in the city center, and then we took a van to the countryside. Highly recommended.

A fabulous way to spend a beautiful morning or afternoon! We rode along wide trails in the national park after being fully briefed by both our driver, Juan, and our guide, Alex. Alex had us practice everything we'd need to know in the arena before heading out on the trail, and both he and Juan made sure we had plenty of photos of our memorable morning. Brushing the horses before and after our ride was relaxing for all, and the Spanish omelette Juan prepared for lunch while we were out was delish! So was the Spanish tomato toast he taught us to make. The horses were both beautiful and well behaved. This is a very well run outfit - a great mix of professional and relaxed attitudes ensures that riders of all abilities are catered for and have wonderful experience!
